    Maya spaceship

    This concept is based on the Mayan jewels and the idea of a machine "bird".
    I worked for quite a lightweight structure while retaining a certain solidity.
    There are others in the style that will happen soon.

    Great design - looking forward to seeing the others!

    What would Caravaggio do?

    Yeah, interesting design. Designing something that looks Mayan yet also lightweight is a challenge, I always picture blocky square forms when I think of Mayan art. I like that you incorporated some of those Mayan shapes/design sensibilities on the ship's paint job, but I wish that aspect was played up a little more.

    Looks great so far! I like the idea.
    One question, how is it propulsed, like a bird?
    Or is there some sort of engine in combination with wing movement?

    Sorry for my crappy English

    IMO Looks a little too close to the Romulan Warbird from the Next Generation

    Sorry for not responding sooner, I have been very busy lately ...
    thank you for your feedback, I'll try to answer everyone.
    (and sorry for my engl, ihope you'll understand me)

    James Dussqe: thank you
    JeffX99: I work ^ ^
    Burhtun: yes I preferred to push away the appearance Maya, especially for pleasure.
    Johnbanana; thx
    M-studio: how is it propulsed? um ... my idea is that Maya's machines works with light and some magical stones.I tried to not take known references to push the technological side / magic.
    I know this is a good excuse, but i promised it's really intends to base.
    I worked on other concepts before.
    dpaint: "Romulan Warbird from the Next Generation" thank you, I didn't knew it.i don't know if the similarities are so great.but feel free to give me good references!thank you.

    now i have this illustration to show, a cyborg made by mechas.a sort of mechanic witch in a "gothic" style/colors :

    Oh Yeah! This I like! Cool design for a ship, very cool. Propulsion need not be Magic it could simply be an as yet unknown system. Not everything needs rockets or some other form of brute force. Like the second image as well as it makes me wonder what is happening. Good Art Dude. So have you designed any other ships/vehicles?

    I love the colorscheme on the second piece.
    I agree with Waipunga thoug, it makes me wonder what is happening too.
